Anything to worry about from truck being on its side?

hey all,

just curious to know if there could be any potential problems motor-wise after the truck has been on its side? had an accident resulting in a very graceful roll onto the passenger side. it was on the side for about an hour. i drove the truck home and to the body shop, everything seemed fine. thoughts?

oh and im sure your all wondering. it was quoted $18000 parts and labor. thankfully its 100% mechanically fine. should be finished today.

thanks

$18, 000? You could buy another truck for that.
It should be fine depending on how long it ran on its side. It could have been oil starved running like that.

If you drove it after the fact and everything sounds/ acts ine I would not worry about it

Check all your fluids... I mean ALL of them. Tranny, Engine, Power Steering, Ect.
But if you know nothing leaked while at the scene of the accident then it should be fine!

Ya i know ill need to top up some PS fluid. That's all i could see that leaked. I guess the ccv is on the opposite side valve cover so i guess no oil in the intake.

Insurance co's aren't totaling like they used to, ever since cash for clunkers. My dad has an 05' F150 2wd crew cab lariat with a salvage title due to a theft but the truck hasn't given him any trouble, so we suspect it was a joyride or something. Anyway, he ran up on a tall curb and damaged the sub frame where the lower control arms bolt up, and pushed the rack and pinion steering assembly up and into the motor, busting the steering lines. He took it to a local body shop, filed the ins. claim, and they ended up doing $8,000 in repairs. They replaced the frame from the transmission crossmember to the front, and they used the 08'+ front frame which relocated the steering assembly to the front of the crossmember and higher up to avoid damage. This also included new lower control arms, balljoints, etc. Most of the charges were in labor since it required removing the cab, motor and transmission.

All on a truck with a salvage title, 7 years old, and 90k miles.
